Stephen Colbert did not back down Wednesday night amid fierce backlash that was unleashed against the late night comic after he went on a lengthy tirade against President Trump.

“I had a few choice insults for the president,” Colbert said on “The Late Show” about his Monday night rant, according to a transcript provided to The Post.

“I don’t regret that. He, I believe, can take care of himself. I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So, it’s a fair fight.”

Colbert did say, however, that he would change a few words which were “cruder than they needed to be.”

He was apparently referencing a joke about Trump’s mouth serving as a “co-k holster” for Russian strongman Vladimir Putin.
